Here, published together for the first time in many years, are the nineteen canonical chapters of the Tellurian Artifice. Authored by Collette Bower in the last decade of the nineteenth century, this set of allegories expound on the Gnostic idea that all of humanity is trapped inside the physical universe: the Gaol that is the World. Some believe it to be a spiritual guidebook that shows the way to enlightenment. Others use its tenets as a basis for their faith and practices. These Circlar sects are as diverse as they are numerous. And yet, the Tellurian Artifice as a complete work has remained an elusive and ephemeral text.
